Aleksi EebenAleksi Eeben - The Four Tales [mtk201]

something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

We're delighted to welcome back Finnish artist Aleksi Eeben, with the latest in his beguilingly offbeat electronic 'numbers' series for Monotonik, 'The Four Tales' - all soaring leads and strange tonal interplay.

Now, it's possible that Eeben - who has been composing electronic music for nearly the past 20 years, initially as Amiga demo-scene legend 'Heatbeat', is a distinctly acquired taste, thanks to his borderline avant jazz influences.

But if first track 'Minor Tale' - all sweetly sliding lead and pitter-patter bass - doesn't convert you to his way of thinking, then there's clearly something wrong here. Later on, 'Grand Tale' rocks the majestic rock synth crossover, all paradiddles and strange incidentals.

Finally, there's 'Aspen, Maple & Pine Leaves', which ends thing on the oddest of blooping cuteness, with some almost classicl phrasings teamed with analog synth and bells. Honestly, there's absolutely nothing else like this out there - which is why we love Aleksi.

Very unpredictable quirky yet accessible melodies. Just what I have been looking for. Not the ubiquitous unimaginative "thump-thump thump-thump" you hear in almost all other electronic music.

Eeben's talent shines through here with the creative progressions and build-ups he uses. The songs blend elements of classical and jazz, all done through the standard fare of electronic and synthesizer which you would expect to find on a Monotonik label release.

The moods vary from mysterious and light to sourly-upbeat due to the off-keyed melodies he sometimes uses.

'Medium Tale' is masterful. 'Minor Tale' is accessible if not melancholic, while 'Aspen, Maple and Pine Leaves' brings out some of the brighter notes of this set.

4.3 out of 5 stars. If you enjoy this style of music, or Eeben's work in particular, then you likely understand that this is all essential listening, so get to it!
